Clinton Losing to GOP Candidates in Three Important States

Republican presidential candidates are beating Hillary Clinton in polls of likely voters in three key states, Fox News reported.

A newly released Quinnipiac University survey shows the Democratic front-runner failing to win against one of three GOP contenders (Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Scott Walker) in each of the states (Colorado, Iowa and Virginia).

The pollsters wrote that in all the states, Clinton either trailed a Republican or was “on the wrong side of a too-close-to-call” scenario. In Colorado, she lost by margins of 46-38 percent to Rubio and 47-38 percent to Walker. In Iowa, Rubio outpolled her by eight points, while Jeb Bush led her by six points.

Fox News noted that Clinton has been slipping in the Quinnipiac surveys since April. “She has lost ground in the horse race,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the university’s poll.

A majority of poll respondents in all three states said they did not think the former secretary of state is “honest and trustworthy.” In Colorado, the margin was 62-34 percent.

The voters were even more skeptical of Donald Trump. Two-thirds indicated they have a negative opinion of the Republican candidate.

The surveys, conducted from July 9-20, involved 1,231 voters in Colorado, 1,236 in Iowa and 1,209 in Virginia.
